Cory Booker praises his campaign for being transparent and courageous enough to claim it’s doomed unless people send $1.7 million FAST

Yesterday Bill de Blasio shocked a lot of people after they found out he’d been running for president during his announcement that he was dropping out of the 2020 race. It’s looking like Cory Booker’s campaign could be among the next to go, according to his campaign manager:

If you’re all in for me, I can't thank you enough. But if you haven’t settled on a candidate & still think my voice belongs in this race, if you believe the Democratic field should include someone like me, I want you to understand the field may narrow & pay attention to this too.
